    not bad at all. more people should go for it instead of changing phone every single year, upgrade your old phone when its starting to give up or recieves no more support, and go for a refurbished one. that way, you wont hurt your wallet or the environment nearly as much.

    i have an Iphone X which is just as old and a daily. and my battery has never been replaced. it is the original from the factory and my capacity is at 93%. iPhones actually hold up over time, unlike androids which make them so expensive as used devices as well because when you buy one you know you can depend on it for years if you can live without the latest features. Iphone 3 - iphone 5 - iphone 6plus - iphone x - next one ill get will be an iphone 15 or 16. they got more expensive and my upgrade times have gotten longer.

    Bro I just bought an iPhone 8 refurbished, good as new for 190 dollars, and I don’t care if it’s bad or not. I’m broke as hell and just needed a new iPhone😂 but everything works fine and perfectly. The condition of the built is okay, mild scratches, no big deal. And the battery capacity is a 100%, I guess they replaced the battery.

    I use my iPhone 8 as my main phone and will continue to till it dies. I don’t see any problem with the phone; the performance is still top notch, no lag whatsoever, it can run any game on the App Store with ease… Also the camera is pretty solid too The only problem is the battery coz it’s getting older, I’ll probably get it replaced and then use the phone for another couple years.

    IDK...The unit I have now is refurbished, and the one it replaced was also refurbished, and that one went strong as a daily driver for well over three years - up until the screen started having severe burn-in and signs of flickering, and STILL I used it for six months more! It was my sister that encouraged me to replace it.. I'm NOT paying for a state-of-the-art phone, especially if it's an Android with THEIR rate of depreciation! iOS phones are a little better with holding their value, but still - I'm NOT getting brand new! NONE of them, regardless of make or OS, is worth the asking price! If you take the time to find a reputable retailer or even service carrier, you can find yourself a rarely used, almost like new year old or two year old flagship!

    Apple refurbish items aren’t bad. They all have brand new batteries with warranty like a brand new one. But the model number has changed to specify if it was purchased brand new, refurbish, etc.

    Watching this on my 3 year old iPhone 8 lol. Needs a battery replacement now, but the thing holds up! Going to get an iPhone 12 mini because mini phones are the best, and hand this over to a relative. Actually pretty environmentally sustainable than getting a new phone yearly I'd hold out for the 13 if it has touchID too. So convenient these days.
